What You Wearing

Skepta, the king of grime, takes us through his style guide.

What you wearing right now?

"A black and red Boy Better Know t-shirt, Ed Hardy/Christian Audigier shorts and a pair of Nike Air Max 90s. The Boy Better Know t-shirt is standard procedure. Ed Hardy/Christian Audiger is big in my life right now, I think they have brought back the old crazy design style Moschino used to have back in the 90s. The Nike Air Max 90s go with anything, shorts, jeans, trousers, you name it."

How would you describe your style?

"Being a grime artist, I need to look presentable at all times, but at the same time still feel comfortable. So I am never over or under dressed. I would describe my style as 'elegantly casual'. Hahahaha!"

Favourite designers?

"I have found a new fashion range called B Rude, by the legendary Boy George. It's a very loud and extravagant clothing line but is ideal if you want to make a statement on arrival. Ed Hardy/Christian Audigier is a winner for me right now because it has a very stylish but casual look about it. Nike trainers and all of their sportswear in general are good."

Favourite boutique?

"I don't have a favourite shop. I'm always looking for new designers so I'm all over the place, my mum hates it!"

How do you like to shop?

"I have days when I wake up and think 'I've worn everything in my wardrobe already', so I phone a friend and go shopping to clear up. I've never and probably will not ever shop online, simply because I feel I need to try things on before I buy them."

Most treasured possession?

"My most treasured item of clothing would be my B Rude jeans which cost £800 (for you) to buy, hahaha! They are plain on the front and have the most crazy crushed gems, stones and pictures on the back. They are toooooo much!"

What are you up to?

"Right now I am chilling in Turkey with my other half, thinking where my single 'Rolex Sweep' is going to chart. The singe is out on 4th August on iTunes and all other digital outlets and then out in stores a week later on the 11th. Till next time 'Keep Rolex Sweepin' yours truly, Skepta the King of Grime! X"
